What an amazing day! I had a second baby shower yesterday with all my friends from work. Over the years, relationships have grown so much and I got to make some amazing friends that I do miss a lot now. Some of them are just like family and I know we’ll cherish each other forever. Each of these ladies have taught me something along the years and I admire and appreciate every single one of them.
One of my favorite things from this baby shower were the letters for the quads. I’ll explain. One of the girls (Aunt SuSu) had the best idea ever. Each letter looked something like this:
Dear Lupei Babies,
I hope you learn ……
I hope you love ……
I hope you are not afraid …..
I hope you never forget ……
So each person filled out a letter, sign it and all of them went into a special binder. I read them last night and the one that touched me the most and several people wrote it down was ” I hope you never forget how much Mommy and Daddy wanted you!” , so true! Of course that one made me cry! These are all wonderful women and I thank them all for celebrating the quads with me!
From there, we went to a restaurant to meet the Lupei family and celebrate my mother-in-law’s 60th birthday. She is such a role model and we all love her so much! Her prayers are the foundation of our family and she’s just like a rock. No matter what happens, she’s there for each and every one of us. A wonderful wife, mother and grandma. It was a fun, fun night. And I was so excited to be part of it, I said the only reason I would miss it would be if I am in the hospital. So now back to “my small world”, at home, in bed 🙂 But I am happy! SO happy!! Soon we will get to hold these precious miracles in our arms. Soon our lives will be totally different!
This is just the start of the birthdays in the Lupei family. Most of us were born in August or September. We’ll see when the quads will decide to show up 🙂
